Requirements
Permissions and credits
This is a combat mod with well developed story and many quests. It might be considered mix between "Fallout 3" and "Rage". Some factions and character have been borrowed from "Rage". Also there are are some elements from legendary "Blade Runner" movie. I believe there is 40 - 50 hours of playing. It fits into main quest without depending on it. If you are tired of playing MQ for 101st time, you may choose to skip it completely during your first visit to Vault 112. Keep in mind, there is a lot of combat in this mod. Slower leveling is provided, it is optional and configurable. The plot is carefully developed and based on strong logic. I dare to say, much more than original game. There are two main story lines. One is about possible revival of "Unity" which was part of the Master's vision in Fallout 2. The other is about tyranny of group called "Provisional Government".

"Rage" is the game created by "Bethesda" and "Id Software", sort of mix between "Doom" and "Fallout 3".

Read more about it in Release Notes which are provided within README file that can be found on these pages. 'Broken Steel' is mandatory. 'Operation Anchorage' is optional. "DCXpansion Project - Stanton Park" is also optional and could be downloaded from Nexus at

New in 5.6
=========
+ new settlement, Subway Town, added

Subway Town has elements of Rage lore. There are no quests, for now. Feel free to visit it, talk to residents and trade. At least two
related quests are planned, but I still have some decisions to make. The town is located inside Anacostia Metro, take first door to the
left when you enter the station. There is an entry about it in Clearwater Combat Manual with brief history of the town.

Initially I have bee working on small worldspace for town, but then I got the idea for two quests. The worldspace  was nice, but
completely useless for purpose of  those quests. There might be some other use for it in the future. 

Story
====
Capital Wasteland is no longer without authority. A group called Provisional Government has claimed to in control
of the DC area. They have done nothing to stop raiders and super mutants or to improve living condition. However
every settlement is required to pay protection. Those who refuse are often bound to suffer the consequences.

There are few groups capable of resisting, like Enclave, Brotherhood of Steel and Clearwater Company. Clearwater
Company is a mercenary group providing protection to those who can afford it.

Elder Lyons kept sending reports to Lost Hills for 20 years without response. Suddenly a chapter arrives from California
to investigate possible resurgence of Masters Army of super mutants.

Their efforts to collect technology brought them in conflict with powerful scavenger group named Gearheads and with Provisional Government.

Those who travel away from settlements and deeper into wasteland are in greater danger than ever. Wasteland is patrolled
by many factions, most of which are hostile.

You will have to survive in this hostile world, but there are allies out there to be found. They will support you with
equipment, supplies and companions if you help them achieve their goals.

This is an unpretentious mod made for fun. However it aims to provide accurate simulation of human communities in post apocalyptic environment. It is based on reality found in failed states today, countries devastated by civil wars, insurgencies and organized crime. It has been taken in account that, unlike today, population would be sparse, and conflicts would resemble gang warfare rather than military campaigns.   

Note
====
During some quests, when objective is moving across wasteland, one can arrive at the quest location and find nothing. It is not a bug. Quest marker is updated once in 90 seconds, creating an impression that player is following tracks. If the target is not there, wait a while, or try guessing where could have they gone.
